Some reasons to quit this mechanical mooc:
No interaction, a question on .Open study just remained not answered.
A big project coming from a customer needs my attention.
I can do the course just alone, without communication and without help of others.
On the internet are other even better sources to learn to program in Python and to learn how to be a better programmer. The course does not add anything valuable to me.
I have this e-book on programming and it suits me better.
The Python folks are very helpful, lots of forums FAQs and helpful comments. To learn Python I do not need the M-MOOC.
The lessons on video are not my taste. I do not like to view videoed lessons.
Codeacademy is confusing, because feedback is not alway appropriate. Some code is depriciated by codeacademy that works quite well in Python.
This Mech. Mooc on skills is very different from the Moocs I did in the past.
